Notes

  • - Average age of the Liverpool starting lineup: 26.5
  • - Average age of the Manchester United starting lineup: 25.85
  • - Alan Kennedy recalls: "I was on a cruise with the Norwegian branch of the Liverpool Supporters Club last week and they presented me with a picture of the goal I scored in that game. You can see all the Liverpool players laughing — almost in disbelief — that my shot was on target! They shouldn’t have been: a couple of minutes earlier I’d had a crack from a similar spot that missed by inches, so I was just finding my range. I remember a fantastic game between two closely matched sides. It was only in extra time that we got on top when Ronnie Whelan settled it with a fantastic goal. As we had won it the previous two years, it had become a special competition and the gloss was applied when Graeme Souness insisted that Bob Paisley go up to collect the cup, as he was retiring at the end of the season. It was a fitting tribute to a legend."
